Channeling also known as
‘Mediumship’ is the phenomenon of a non-physical entity communicating psychically through a medium; the
medium being a living human being.
There are two fundamental types of channeling:
Conscious– Conscious channelling also known as ‘Trance mediumship’ is communication through a conscious individual. The person doing the channelling is fully aware and conscious of his/her surroundings and has complete conscious control over all mental faculties. The individual acting as the medium usually receives messages through thoughts from a non-physical entity. The individual then usually relays those messages by either writing them down or speaking and having the talk recorded by a voice recorder. Conscious
channelling is known to be the least accurate of the two types of channelling as it is very open to subjective manipulation. The medium’s thoughts may convolute and jumble up the message the non-physical entity is trying to communicate, thereby creating a lot of error.
Unconscious – Unconscious channelling also known as ‘Physical Mediumship’ is when the individual who is the medium goes into an altered state of consciousness such that they are not aware of their physical surroundings and lose control over their physical body and mental faculties. The individual’s consciousness takes a “back seat” so to speak as another entity takes temporary control over their physical body. The individual’s consciousness goes into a state
similar to that of dreaming. The non-physical entity then utilizing the medium’s body relays messages and can talk, hear and move around. In some cases the entity will operate the mediums eyes. While the person is channeling often their voice will change, they may speak with a slight accent and usually their demeanour changes completely.
